Jazz Bar Bent J: For Jazz LOVERS
Probably the most traditional jazz place in Denmark, Bent J would be an average bar with lots of regular customers, had it not been for the live jazz that plays on an average of five times a week. Over time some of the most famous jazz artists have been there, in spite of the place being the size of a shoebox - scene included. These days, most of the orchestras are the best of the Danish elite (including the large handful of resident foreign jazz stars) play there regularly. The entrance fee is low, the beer is cold, the listeners are enthusiastic (though far too many), and if one gets to meet The Man Himself -Bent J - one understands how such a dynamic jazz milieu can thrive in what is really but a town. He wears belt and braces, but it is his shirt buttons that are most endangered - nuff said!
Dress Code: No nudity - beer preferred.

- Romantic Travel and Honeymoons
This is a relatively new place mainly for students but everybody else is of course welcome.
Its located on Nordhavnsgade, on the harbour, close to the cathedral.
At the moment they have cultural events like bookcafes, poetry slam and concerts with ( so far) unknown bands.
The beer prices are cheaper than other places in the centre and ithas a really nice atmosphere.
Pan Club: Gay Aarhus
Seeing as this was my birthday, I felt I should go out and pretend to be young enough to dance the night away without wishing I was tucked up in bed by midnight.
This place is one of the few gay places for nightlife in Aarhus. There's a good mix of girlz and boyz, different ages and different looks.
Unfortunately the drinks in this place were sooooo expensive that it actually was quite annoying. Why are gay places so dear?! I suspect there are other places in Aarhus that are pretty gay friendly too, but this is the one that is exclusively so. It also houses an advice centre I believe.
One good thing about the club is that there is at least plenty of space to sit around and chat, with a dancefloor and a more cafe style area out the back. Not an amazing club, but fair enough to spend a night visiting in a new city. And when it's open, it's open until about 5am.
Dress Code: Dress code is pretty relaxed. There seemed to be a female contingent in rubber, on the whole it's the usual jeans and t-shirt, or whatever you feel comfortable boogying in.

The Cockney Pub: A favorite haunt
The Cockney Bar has a friendly British staff and a crowd of regulars, some of whom are British themselves, which gives it a bit the English pub atmosphere it seeks.
The bar is very tiny, they don't serve food, and the selection of beers are from around Europe and often are constantly changing. It's a beer and Scotch connisuer's place, and worth stopping in for a few pints or drams.
theres just one place where you can find someone during the night. it's the area around the channel, with about 10 bars. they are nice but not later than midnight..everyone's gone. but it's a night place.
Casino Bar: A true friendly Danish pub
Not really a casino (it has one slot machine hidden in the corner), the bar is maybe the size of two hotel rooms, if that! It's a hygge, or cozy, place where locals of all social classes and stripes hang out. They have a great record collection of old Danish and general Western music, and the staff is real friendly! Be careful, it can be so friendly you might not remember going home!
Coffee & Silver: For a very eclectic crowd
When you want something different from the cafe bars, clubs, pubs, and want to meet a wide range of different people, Coffee & Silver is a great place to go. Furnished with quirky art and containing a mix of artists, students, asylum-seekers, and a few yuppie types, Coffee & Silver can break up an otherwise monotonous evening.
Train: Good place to watch live music
Train is both a nightclub and a live music hall, and its large standing-room-only section makes it a great place to be near the action. I saw Tower of Power here in a very memorable concert. Its website (www.train.dk) provides details of upcoming concerts--it's in Danish but you can navigate your way around enough without knowledge of the language based on the English words mixed in with the language at least to find out when the shows are on.
Peter Gift - part bodega, part British pub: Neighborhood pub
Peter Gift is part bodega, part English pub. The word "bodega" in Danish means more like a neighborhood pub, not what it means in Spanish, which I believe is warehouse.
Peter Gift has a mix of working class people, older folks, and young trendy people, and it does not put on any airs. Friendly folks and good times.
Fader Eskil: Good Music scene
Fader Eskil is a great place to watch a band. The crowd usually is in good spirits and they have a mix of some cover bands (like Tom Waits) and bands playing sing-a-long Danish songs. I've had a blast coming here.
Play: new club
this is a new club of the kind Ive been longing for a whie..Its a rock, indie , alternative club with live bands and theme nights in the club.
Its situated next to Social club and then entrance is 40 kr.
Dress Code: anything goes
Voxhall: best venue
this is the biggest venue for live music in Aarhus and its not really so big. They have some good international names and let new danish bands play there as well to promote themselves.
It had been renovated and is connected to something called " Huset" which is an activity house for young people where they can do arts and all sorts of interesting things ..
den sidste: Paradis
this building is a nightclub and a cinema in one. The cinema is my faourite because they show the independant and alternative films they dont show elsewhere.
at night " den sidste cafe" is the last one open ( hence the name meaning the last one) but there is always a soo many people waiting to get in so I can never be bothered.
its very popular for people bnot wanting to go home yet.
Dress Code: never noticed anything just normal go out clothes
A place I've been going to a...
A place I've been going to a lot lately is a disco called Social club in Klostergade in the center .
It's a student place and you get in for free if u show your student ID at the door . The music is mainstream and hitlist, but the drinks are cheap and so are the beer . And the best thing is the guys . I've seen some quite good looking ones in there .
Dress Code: Don't think they is any as long as you are 21 you can get in .
